From all over Ihe city come re

in this way.
The co'ohle stone pavement on

from the lush water and one place
in front of the William Schmidtmann
harness shop sank several feet, hav
ing recently boon taken up by the
water company to make some re
pairs and the softened condition of
the base made it an easy matter for
the water to undermine it.
